I didn’t post or write anything tonight because it was the first night in a while that I just played Skylanders Giants on the Wii U while we watched TV. I love the feature of being able to play my games on the gamepad while we can still watch TV. So I ended up doing heroic challenges for the character, Fright Rider (not Pop Fizz above). Fright Rider is a fun character to use. I got him through most of the challenges but there are two of them that are just so frustrating. I’ve got to figure a way to do these two challenges the first time, every time and not have to keep doing them over and over.
One of the most hotly anticipated video game sequels was released on October 21. Skylanders Giants is the follow up to last year’s Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. I played Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure last year and all throughout the year. I loved it and collected each and every Skylanders figure that I could get my hands on. There were 32 regular figures from Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure which works out to four figures from each of the eight elements (Life, Water, Undead, Fire, Air, Tech, Earth and Magic). I bought them all plus four legendary figures and a few other special ones. Now with Skylanders Giants there are 48 figures plus variants so by the time I’m done collecting this time around I’ll probably have close to 100 figures. But that is okay because I LOVE this series of games and I’m playing everything that has to do with Skylanders and Skylanders Giants. I even wrote a handy guide for people interested in the Skylanders Giants game.
Here’s how the characters break down for Skylanders Giants:
- Eight brand new regular size characters, one from each element.
- Eight brand new Giants figures, one from each element.
- Eight Lightcore regular size characters, one from each element.
- Twenty-Four regular size Series 2 Skylanders figures (characters from Skylanders: Spyro’s adventure in new poses)
- 4-6+ Legendary Figures
- 4-6+ Variant Figures
On the day of the release I bought every single figure that was released and on the next day Toys R US had a wave two preview and I bought all but two of the figures from that wave, I still cannot find Lightcore Jet Vac. A friend online actually found and bought Hot Head (Fire Element Giant) for me and tweeted to me that he got it for me, so excited for that one.
